This invention provides a method for concentrating and collecting small quantities of fetal nucleated red blood cells contained in the maternal blood. The method for concentrating and collecting nucleated red blood cells from the maternal blood comprises: (i) subjecting the maternal blood to a first density-gradient centrifugation and collecting a cell fraction containing nucleated red blood cells; (ii) treating the cell fraction containing nucleated red blood cells so as to selectively changes the density of the nucleated red blood cells from that of the white blood cells; and (iii) subjecting the treated cell fraction containing the nucleated red blood cells to a second density-gradient centrifugation so as to collect a fraction containing nucleated red blood cells.

This rotating electric machine has a rotor, stator core, field windings for multiple poles, and armature windings for the multiple poles. The rotor is rotatably supported about a shaft. Convex-shaped multiple salient pole sections are formed on the outer circumference of the rotor while arranged in the circumferential direction. The stator core is provided along the outer circumference of the rotor with an air gap from the rotor. Convex-shaped multiple teeth are formed on the inner circumference of the stator core while arranged in the circumferential direction. The field windings for the multiple poles are wound around each of the multiple teeth while insulated from the field windings.

A Kβ satellite peak in X-ray fluorescence (XRF) spectra is observed as a counterpart of the pre-edge peak of the X-ray absorption near edge structure (XANES). In Kβ emission of chromium, a small satellite peak is observed at 5.983-5.988 keV only for hexavalent chromium compounds such as CrO(3), Na(2)CrO(7)·2H(2)O, Na(2)CrO(4)·4H(2)O, K(2)Cr(2)O(7), K(2)CrO(4), Zn(2)CrO(4)(OH)(2)·2H(2)O, PbCrO(4), and BaCrO(4), together with the main peak at 5.947 keV, while trivalent chromium compounds such as Cr(2)O(3) and Cr(OH)(3)·nH(2)O show only the main peak at 5.947 keV. This corresponds to the fact that the K pre-edge peak in XANES is observed only for the hexavalent chromium compounds. The electronic level causing the satellite peak is almost at the same energy level as that causing the pre-edge peak. Our finding not only affects the interpretation of the origin of the pre-edge peaks but also leads to the simple speciation method of chromium compounds using XRF.

The optical polarization properties of Al-rich AlGaN thin quantum wells on AlN substrates with various substrate orientations are numerically calculated using a 6×6 k·p Hamiltonian. The calculation results show that the predominant polarization direction abruptly switches from the in-plane direction to the c -axis direction at an Al composition of ∼0.76 in quantum wells on c -plane substrates. It is also shown that the polarization characteristics drastically change by small inclination of the substrates due to valence band mixing effects. It is found that the use of the vicinal substrates as well as semipolar and nonpolar substrates could be beneficial in improving optical device performance. © 2010 American Institute of Physics.

Transparent and conductive oxide (TCO) thin films are used practically for various application fields; in particular, the market for transparent electrodes used in touch panels, flat panel displays or lamps, and thin-film solar cells has been expanding recently. Many TCO materials composed of n-type metal oxide semiconductors have been investigated for more than 40 years. Various obtainable properties in TCO thin films can be controlled by the choice of host (matrix) material as well as the kind and content of doped impurity. TCO thin-film materials such as impurity-doped ZnO, In2O3, and SnO2 as well as multicomponent oxides composed of combinations of these binary compounds are the best candidates for practical use as transparent electrodes. The carrier transport and optical properties in polycrystalline TCO thin films with a carrier concentration on the order of 1020-1021cm-3, that is, degenerated n-type semiconductors, have been explained by combining experimental results with theoretical analyses. © 2013 Elsevier Inc.
